My dog just got spayed last week and she has been recovering

Customer Question

My dog just got spayed last week and she has been recovering great but as of today she has had this weird sounding cough and she's breathing shallow and shivering. She has a follow up appointment tomorrow morning. Are these symptoms concerning and needing to be attended sooner than tomorrow?

Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am happy to answer your question today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
There may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a thorough reply for you.

1- How many hours before the appointment?

2- Is she lethargic?

3- How much does she weigh?

4- Can you take a look at her gums and see if they are pink or pale?
